will not, not now, not ever support raising the gas tax. [ applause ] the answer to our infrastructure problems is not to tax our people more. it is so spend their money smarter. why would we raise the gas tax to improve infrastructure when all of the gas tax dollars we currently collect don't go to improving our infrastructure now. millions of dollars each year in our gas tax revenue are being diverted away from our bridges and our highways. let's change that. and then let's invest more of the money we already have into this vital area. every year you hear me talk about the money tree that falls during session whereby new dollars appear above and beyond what was available whin we balanced our budget in december and january. let's prioritize that money differently this year. we've's released an executive budget that is balanced. funds the core function of government. strengthens underfunded needs like mental health and law enforcement and identifies money for road and bridge improvements. let's follow that blueprint. we can make our state safer and our business climate can be more dyna

noncombat taxes -- b combat taxes, why did you choose to do that in libya and not choose -- or choose to not do that in other places? each circumstance, of course, is significantly different. and it has to be measured on its own merits. it also addresses, i think, the limits of power. military power does not solve all problems. and importantly in libya, there was aup security council resolution -- a u.n. security council resolution that called for this mission and authorized all available means. in syria there is no such security council resolution that would, that would provide the legal underpinning for an operation in syria similar to what was conducted in libya. so it's a great question, but there are significant differences, i think. i should caveat all of that by reminding all that syria's not in my region, so i'm a long, long way from a syrian expert. but as an interested observer, that's kind of how i see the difference. >> thank you, dr. scott and yen. my name is melvin foote, i'm a member of an organization called the constituency for africa, we work on public policy here in
